Here is a statement about how your salve effects me.
I began using the Chugiak Heights Devils club salve in 2008 after going through a second knee replacement. I receive about 8 hours of pain relief after each application of the Devils Club salve. Prior to using this salve, I had been taking prescription drugs for about 3 months and applying a prescription salve for post operative pain from the first knee replacement. I never received more than 3-4 hours of pain relief from the prescriptions. When I had to undergo a second knee replacement I tried the Devils Club salve and I was able to get off the constant use of oral post operative drugs after about 2 1/2 weeks.
I also receive two added benefits of the salve. First is the savings in cost. I find the salve affordable and because I receive longer relief I need less of the Devils Club salve than I needed of the prescriptions. Second is that I experience no side-effects to the salve. I tend to have nasty side-effects to drugs so I make efforts to stay away from drugs unless I see no other option. My surgeon liked it because there was no risk of overdosing or addiction-(always a concern after bone surgery).
